Chiefs sign Clyde Edwards-Helaire to one-year contract

Clyde Edwards-Helaire has decided to stay with the Kansas City Chiefs for the 2024 season, after agreeing to a one-year deal. This comes after the Chiefs selected Edwards-Helaire with the No. 32 overall pick in the 2020 draft, following their victory in Super Bowl LIV. As a rookie, he had 1,100 yards from scrimmage and five total touchdowns. However, due to injuries and Isiah Pacheco’s strong performance, Edwards-Helaire fell down the depth chart in 2022.

Despite the Chiefs declining his fifth-year option last spring, Edwards-Helaire still managed to tally 411 yards from scrimmage on 87 touches during the Chiefs’ Super Bowl LVIII win. In his 48 games with 32 starts, he has accumulated 1,845 rushing yards with 12 rushing touchdowns. Additionally, he has caught 89 passes for 765 yards and seven TDs.

In addition to re-signing Edwards-Helaire, Kansas City reportedly had running back J.K. Dobbins in for a visit on Tuesday. It is uncertain whether the signing of Edwards-Helaire will impact their pursuit of Dobbins, who recently met with the Chargers as well. The signing of Dobbins would likely push Edwards-Helaire even further down the depth chart if it were to happen, but it remains to be seen how this will play out in the coming months leading up to training camp.
